Living my dreams in Rhodos
"I spent 5 magical days in this hotel.... Located in the old town of Rhodos, the place will activate all your senses and makes you live your own fairytale. All details are unique and you can feel that the hotel is ran with a lot of love and deducation. Hotel provides, free of charge, phone with unlimited internet, giving you all the infoes about the town and facilities, places you should visit and a possibility to talk with EU countries, America, Russia.....completely for free...Traditional and delicious organic breakfast is served every morning in the amazing, blooming garden. Thank you dear Vaggelis& Elias, I am, indeed, in love with the place. Looking forward to see you again! Regards, Mila Jovovic"

Honest Report of Nikos Hotel
"Holiday for 1 week and the beggining of August last year, 3 mid 20s lads. Start with; Location = wayyy to far from the resort, 5 minutes away is a complete lie - its a 25minute walk at best!Taxi ranges between 6 and 12 euros so works out rather expensive in the long run. Food = very poor and expensive for what you can get in main resort. Breakfast was stale bread for toast and a slice of ham/cheese - yet the "chef" turns her nose up at you that your there or ask for anymore tea/juice ect. Room = extremely basic, no shower curtain so make sure theres a towel down as the FULL bathroom gets totally soaked. 24hr Bar = complete load of nonsense as when we got back they always tell you to go to bed as the bar is closed. (closes about 1am) Staff = Unhelpful and arrogant, 20/30 tourists wanting the premiership football on yet the bar staff turned EVERY tv on to greek football - so they really dont cater for the customers at all. Hana the Rep = isnt interested in anyone that isnt male or has money to burn on pointless trips. "Silent rave"/Booze cruz" ect - you can get these in the town centre at any time and are half the price! Positives = the pool was very clean all the time, weather was amazing, and the atmosphere between tourists was great, everyone got on well - big'up to the lasses from stoke/liverpool ;) ALL IN ALL - Malia is a great place to stay; but do not stay in this Hotel as its too far out and theres better places in the main strip."

dont go to the nikos
"we have just come back from a 2 week stay at the nicos Im so disapointed, staff were rude and unhelpful. Hana our rep well to be honest if you werent interested in clubbing or getting drunk she wasnt interested.she was more interested in flirtingand sunbathing. when I approached her about a problem we had with noise one night she told me, well the hotel does echo, I later found out that she was with the people who had come back from a late night club. We were also informed to hand our passports in and we would get them back 24 hours later this didnt happen and they were kept for 2 weeks in an unlocked draw behind the bar. I was informed by the travel agent that the town was 5 mins away and the beach was 2 mins away this is absoulte rubbish more like 45 mins. I was informed by another guest at the hotel that the passports were left unattended on a table in the restaurant. Breakfast was a joke didnt fill you up at all, and you got glared at if you attempted to go up for more food. Please dont book here its terrible."

"Istayed at the nikos hotel between the 16'th sept and the 30'th sept 08 .I am 46 so by the time i got there most of the young people had gone home.In the hotel there where people far older than me.The room was very basic but ok for me.The breakfast was ok toast, jam juice, etc, but enough to fill you up.Food was served at the bar try the greek salad.Malia is about 15 min walk away there paths either of the road the lights are dim but enough to see.I hired a quard bike and i went a fire distance on it,but always where a helmet.I hired the quard from extreme on the strip but take my advice do go and get one from the are not very road worty and if you take it back there is a small greek lad in his 20' he will try and put you by saying can't speak english but this a load of rubbish he will also try and rip you off so go some where else.

"Overall: >hotel very clean, the pool side got hosed down and cleaned every morning. >rooms basic but is totally adequate. >food was good, (carbonara=yum!) an reasonable priced. >breakfast was basic but again adaquate, toast (which is as near to english toast as they can probably get, so bless them for trying) and jam an juice. >CHRIS THE BAR GUY WAS FAB!bless him, thought he was a bit moody at first but he was on the night shift with stupid kids playing him up so I dont blame him! He was NOT trying to sleep and flirt with all the girls!! >I thought Yannis was great but the younger woman an her 2 daughters were so bloody miserable, didnt smile, chat or be friendly to guests... sometimes felt quite arkward about being in their hotel! >our rep Lee was usless...we were all there waiting for the welcome meeting to take place, he jus sat inside. He didnt get everyone together and promote anything... I found him difficult and arkward and cocky. He hardly visited our hotel and didnt tell us about ANY excursions! But I had a great Holiday, the walk into malia was only short, some beautiful views...lovely weather!"

"the hotel is an absolute joke, anyone who has left a good report,have u actually been on holiday before? the hotel is a mile from anywere and your isolated from everyone else. u have to pay taxis to go anywere which adds up when your there 4 two weeks( thank god i wasnt) the hotel is very basic, the rooms are like match boxes and feel like your in a sauna as theres no air con. i felt like i was back in the army again when i woke up for a continental breakfast, i wud rather eat a survival ration pack! the staff are so arrogant and snotty they are very unhelpful and wudnt even lend a towel on our last day for a shower when we had to vacate the room at 10am and didnt fly out till 4am the following morning. please avoid this hotel at all cost and save your hard earned money!!"

"I went along with my friend of the same age 20 & 21. We arrived about 11.00pm and there were plenty of people at the 24 hour bar!!!! we instantly made friends and went to the strip. The walk isnt that far at all. some people may be over exaggerating as it is a 10-15 min walk and we didnt need to take a taxi once as there are paths of either side of the road. The owners of this hotel are brilliant Yannis being the legend as was behind the hotel bar as we arrived back at the hotel at approx 6am every night!!!! the atmosphere at this hotel is really good and everyone seemed to get on with eachother which you dont see that much anymore!!!! It is an escapades hotel which does indicate that it is 18-30s hotel so everyone is around that age!!! definately a place to go if you are around 20!!!! The rooms are basic but you dont really use them as the weather when we went was too good to miss!!! the pool itself is great with music coming from around the whole bar and outskirts!!! the food is really cheap and good for the price!!! the drinks are a tad expensive but basically the same price as the main malia strip....the dogs bollocks cocktails are to die for and worth the 5 euros for it!!!!! I am definately considering coming again as the holiday itself was better than i expected and nikos is the best hotel as there are always people around to talk to!!! cheers yanniS!!!!!!"

"Stayed at the Nikos Hotel with my boyfriend for 2 weeks. Loved Malia and would definately go back. The first week we stayed round the pool and sampled some of the hotels food which was good value for money. The second week got really busy and couldn't get round the pool so had to go to the beach. The beach was about a 15 minute walk and it cost 4 euros to use the sunbeds. Stayed B&B but only got up one morning in the whole 2 weeks, to be fair you only had a choice of toast and cereal so we didn't mind missing it. Chris, Yannis and Hellena are really nice espeically Chris bless him think he was overwhelmed by all the female attention. Would go back to Nikos Hotel but I think Malia is definately a girly holiday. Thanks for a great stay!!"

"Just returned from holiday and thought i would give you a complete run down of the prices. it is a 20 min walk in to the center of malia and is 7 euros each way. i hired a quad bike for 5 days for 90 euros with full insurance you can get cheaper if you get an older bike. food at the hotel veries from 3 euros for things like a hot dog to pork and lamb. water costs 1euro, other bottled drinks 3 euros, small glasses of vodka and coke are 3 euros, there are 2 drinks you have to try one is red vodka and pinnaple juice the other is the dogs bolloks for 5 euros it is also 5 euros for any cocktail at the hotel. on a night out i would recomend Not going on the pub crawl with the rep as it is 5 euros every drink if you go on your own it is BOGOF and a free shot but if you have a group of four or more as for a free fishbowl and you will recive!!! you do get pesterd by people trying to drag you in just keep an eye on ya friends been draged off, Just to let you know this is illiegal but they still do it. my fav bars were premier which has karrioki and a nice bar tender called Georgey Porgey make friendswith him and you recive lots of free shots!! another good bar is bar onethis one has a pole and a nice bar tender called barlos he is sooooooo fine also make friends and recieve free drinks!! other good bars are cyotes brill bar lots of dancing on the bar and free shots pored in to ya mouth. then you get to malibu which has 4 pole to dance on and is a good atmasfear if you get any further i will praise you!! Most meals are about 5 euros to 20 euros depending what you have i liked eating at the bull and the red lion thay have big servings in there! Ok so the hotel is very clean my room was cleaned every day and mopped every other i dont think i recived any fresh towels within the 10 days i was there but i had fun which is what matters dolly was fun on a night out but didnt c her much through the day, chis the bar man is funny and loves flertyingwith the girls, i will mentin they have internet access at the hotel which costs 1euro for 15 min. oh if you have chance have a day trip to dia island the water there is lovely lagoon waterand cost 20 euros each for the day plus 7 euros for food on the boat. so thats a run down of every thing i can think off ask dolly to show you the thunder clap song and have a look for carols inflatable crock at the pool, carol/morrine wanted abit of CROCK while she was out there lol. every one has to say crock crock, wap wap. Hope this helps you all abit more. oh watch out for the raki at the welcome meating it some strong stuff!!!!!"

"just come back from holiday after staying at nikos which was great staff was superb apart from chris the barman who wanted to sleep with every women he could. the rep was usless dolly. she would go out drinking all night then turn up at nikos jump in pool fully clothed then fall asleep on sunbeds and wake up just before her boss would turn up. one day when she was needed most she was seen driving around malia with her friends and she did not even turn up at the hotel. other than that yanis and elaine were top class they would always have a laugh and joke with you. bar open 24hrs and the cleaners do clean the room everyday. clean towels every other day! walk to strip is a bit far so taxi cost 7 euros a lot of people hired quad bikes or buggys to get around in. will be going back next year just a shame the reps dont support you."
